Amy Duernberger - Electronic Resources Librarian
I manage all of the electronic resources for the library including databases, journals, e-books and additional web resources. I also provide library instruction sessions for students, faculty, and staff as well as assist with reference and research questions. Believe it or not, I am an avid tennis player and outdoor enthusiast. As a result of my adventures, I am currently writing a hiking guide for the University of South Carolina Press. The working title for the guide is Appalachian Wonder-a guide to hiking the southern Appalachian balds.

Sandy Smith – Research and Office Assistant
I handle all administrative activities for the library, assist the director with budgeting and tracking expenses, managing statistical data, as well as manage the library's recreational reading collection. I also manage all of the content on the library's website. I joined the Wessels library staff in October 1997 as the assistant to the public services librarian, and in January 2006 began in my current position. While here at Newberry, I have been blessed with many wonderful experiences but none as wonderful, or as meaningful as the education I received here. In December 2008, I graduated with a BA in History, and with minors in English, and Creative Writing. In fact, I was the first to graduate with the Creative Writing minor here at Newberry. I have a daughter who graduated before me in 2006, something she has never let me live down.

I find great joy in helping others, something I believe that has helped me greatly both personally and professionally.
